“I’m very excited and proud. The festival is a special opportunity to introduce Vietnamese music and culture to people in the region,” she said.

Nhi will perform with other artists from Japan and ASEAN-member countries, such as Ryuji Imaichi, Ryotaro Sugi and Nogizaka46 from Japan, and Sarah Hieronimo from the Philippines.

Japanese artist Piko Taro, who rose to fame with his hit Apple Pen, will be the host of the festival.

The festival celebrates the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and ASEAN countries.

In 2014, pop star My Linh was a Vietnamese representative at the first Japan-ASEAN Music Festival.

Dong Nhi, whose real name is Mai Hong Ngoc, began her music career in 2008 after releasing teen-pop songs Khoc (Cry), Boi Roi (Embarrassment) and Bi Mat Cua Hanh Phuc (Secret of Happiness).

These songs helped her become famous among teenagers.

In 2009, she released her first album The First Step, which was named one of the Top 10 Albums of the Year at the 2010 Zing Music Awards 2010.

She has released four albums and several singles, many of them hits, and has appeared in music reality shows as a competitor or mentor.

She was one of four coaches for the reality music shows The Voice Kid Vietnam in 2016 and the Voice Vietnam in 2017.
